Villagers – A Trick Of The Light lyrics
[Verse 1]
My heart is spilling over
Crashing on the ground
I can't see what's around me
But soon I'll come round

My faith is in the balance
Of a million tiny words
So I return to silence

[Chorus]
And if I see a sign in the sky tonight
No one's gonna tell me it's a trick of the light
May never come but I'm willing to wait
What can I say? I'm a man of the faith
And there's an ocean in my body
And there's a river in my soul
And I'm crying

[Verse 2]
It's time that I let go
Of things I can't control
This path that I've taken
Is the only one I know

Well I've come so far to get here
And I've got so far to go
So I'll take what I can get
In matters of the soul

[Chorus]
And if I see a sign in the sky tonight
No one's gonna tell me it's a trick of the light
May never come but I'm willing to wait
What can I say? I'm a man of the faith
And there's an ocean in my body
And there's a river in my soul
And I'm crying

[Bridge]
And we are the dawn
And we carry the sun
And we are the dawn
And we carry the sun

[Chorus]
And if I see a sign in the sky tonight
No one's gonna tell me it's a trick of the light
May never come but I'm willing to wait
What can I say? I'm a man of the faith
And there's an ocean in my body
And there's a river in my soul
And I'm crying

And if I see a sign in the sky tonight (See it coming)
No one's gonna tell me it's a trick of the light (Feel it coming)
May never come but I'm willing to wait
What can I say? I'm a man of the faith
And there's an ocean in my body
And there's a river in my soul
And I'm crying
